A singer in Pattaya is now facing legal action and has been summoned by the police for repeatedly singing copyrighted material despite several warnings not to do so.
The singer in question Noppasin Saengsuwan also known as Num Kala, 36, has been repeatedly caught performing the song “Yam” in Walking Street venues as well as at other gigs across the resort city.
Despite being warned not to perform the copyrighted song he allegedly continued to do so resulting in a warrant being issued on Sunday which was presented to the Grammy Head Office in Asoke, Bangkok.
Following the news of the warrant the 36-year-old singer voluntarily handed himself in to Pattaya police.
Accompanied by his lawyer the singer reported to Pattaya police station and spoke with Chief Apichai Krobpetch and said that he had previously only received one warning regarding the song and was in the process of seeking legal advice over the matter.
He went to the station armed with 100,000 baht in case he needed to bail himself out.
Chief Apichai said the matter could still be resolved without legal action if both parties involved could come to an agreement over the copyrighted material.
If no agreement can be reached the singer will go before a court where he could face four charges of using copyrighted material without permission.
